The festival of electronic music ICKPA from the team of Georgian techno-club Bassiani will take place from June 1 to 3. The organizers report in social media that the location remains the same — it’s the Soviet sanatorium «Khvylya» which is located 20 minutes from Kyiv.
They promise to announce the line-up and program of the festival in the near future.
«We came to Kyiv with the idea of creating a meeting place for dancers from East and West about a year ago, — the ICKPA team says. — We were fascinated by Kyiv’s potential as an international melting pot of cultural processes, and we quickly became convinced of that ourselves. Now it’s more than a belief, now we are deep in confidence that we will realize this potential, despite the geopolitical tensions that worry us. … In such difficult times we want to say that we are together with our community, with Kyiv, with Ukraine in everything that the future holds for us».
